THE LEAD:
Husson University scored the game's first 28 points, forced four turnovers and rushed for exactly 200 yards and the host Eagles defeated Dean College 48-16 in Eastern Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) action on Friday night.

The victory for Husson overshadowed a record-breaking performance by Errol Breaux (Marietta, Ga.) who caught six passes for 229 yards and two more touchdowns – including an NCAA record-tying 99-yard score as the third quarter came to a close.

HOW IT HAPPENED:
The Eagles got on the board midway through the first when quarterback Cory Brandon hit Ty Bassett for a ten-yard score at the 8:18 mark.

That lead doubled six seconds later when a fumbled handoff between Terrell Watts (New Haven, Conn.) and DeAndre Grange (Teaneck, N.J.) bounced into the waiting arms of Ace Curry, who raced 27 yards for Eagle score.

Husson was back on the board again late in the opening period when Brandon connected with Kyle Gaudet from 51 yards out.

Another Eagle touchdown came when Tyreek Bromley blocked a punt and scored from two yards out and when the two-point conversion was converted, Husson was in front, 28-0.

The Bulldogs did score in the second quarter when Watts hit Breaux on an 84-yard catch and run.

Husson scored two times in the second but the extra point of the second touchdown was blocked and David Marino-Silver (Tampa, Fla.) was able to scoop it up and return it 98 yards for two points.

Unfazed, the Eagles tacked on two more touchdowns before the half came to a close, making the score 48-9 at the half.

The only scoring in the second half came courtesy of Breaux's record-tying score on a pass from Quintus Reid (New Haven, Conn.).

INSIDE THE NUMBERS:
London Chambers (New Britain, Conn.) led all players with 13 tackles, while Shannon Moxey (Marietta, Ga.) and Wadell Alceus (Apopka, Fla.) each finished with eight and seven, respectively.

UP NEXT:
Dean returns to action next Saturday when they travel to Maritime for a 2:00 p.m. kickoff.
